A Book Haul! (?)



Fourscore and Seven Fortnights ago, when our forefathers were but young spring chickens and Winter Had Arrived, I bought Two Books, yay verily!

Today, the culmination of prophecy is before your very eyes. No longer can you claim ignorance. No longer can your ignore the Word of  Esslemont! With this physical verification staring you in the face, YOU….ARE….WITHOUT….EXCUSE!!!!!

Yep, my hardcover edition of Kellanved’s Reach came in the mail. I’m starting it now and a review will go up as soon as I finish it.  Thankfully, Rebecca has already reviewed it and I’ve lowered my expectations accordingly. At least I think I have.

Is it really a “Book Haul” if it’s only one book? I feel it is cheating somehow, like if a fisherman claimed he had a real haul and then showed you one minnow. There needs to be another, more accurate, term for such things. Sadly, my godly knowledge of words and terms has suddenly failed me and I find myself floundering, like a minnow! 😉

    A book catch, perhaps? 😀

  3. I agree with a “catch” description. Unless it’s a rare book that’s almost unfindable (ew, is that a word? Yikes! And I see a redundancy. My brain appears to be offline today.) Then it could be a “haul”. 😉

  4. Yay, glad you got your hands on the hardcover, I know you had your eyes on that format.

      Yeah, I’m still getting a few hardcovers here and there. Now that I’ve pretty much moved to ebooks on my kindle oasis, owning a hardcover is more of a “I own this” type thing than anything 🙂

    That cover looks great. As far as one book being a book haul, sure it is!

  6. One could catch just one fish, but if it’s a big tuna the word “haul” would not be inappropriate after all… 😉

  7. Just call it ‘I bought a book. Just one. So it’s not a haul’ Or ‘not a haul’ 😀

    …Yeah, I’m not THAT creative haha

      But “I Bought a Book” doesn’t have the same appeal as a post title 😉
      Kind of like the difference between sneakers and knee high leather boots!


  8. A book catch is a pretty good way to describe it. I tend to go with book grab and splurges!
